Children at Sandroyd still write letters home!
Although we have Skype, emails and telephone contact (no mobiles!), writing a letter is still an important skill and children are encouraged to write letters at weekends and, in a more formal environment, during English lessons.
The children receive mail on a daily basis and we encourage them to write to grandparents, godparents and siblings from time to time. We also ensure that, after weekend visits with friends’ families, host families or guardians, the essential “thank you” letters are written!
